Oct. 30, 2008

While the Champlain Valley Union High girls cross country team lost out in its bid for a sixth straight Division 1 state championship on Saturday at Thetford Academy, the boys team came within a mere three points of knocking off favored winner Essex High.

Led by Tony Sulva, who finished in second just four second behind winner David Sinclair of Green Mountain Valley School (17:40), the boys team finished with 52 points. Essex emerged victorious with 49 points.

Redhawks finishing behind Sulva included Zak Pete (6th), Justin McKenzie (9th), Jason Clairmont (17th) and John Dixon (23rd).

The Essex girls ran past CVU, 76-56, for the first time this season.

Leading the Redhawks were Summer Spillane (9th), Adrienne Devita (10th), Nora McFadden (11th) and Sierra Frisbie (18th).

    I am writing in response to Mr. Hoxworth’s article on transportation costs for the poor in Vermont. I would like to suggest further research on this topic before we simply just give another handout or tax credit. The poor, may, have a higher disproportionate burden on their transportation costs than the wealthier residents of Vermont; however, they also have a lower disproportionate burden on taxes and housing. Pick your evil.
    We can simply just give every poor Vermonter an energy efficient car, gas card, free tuition, renter’s rebate, etc.…but the only way out of poverty is through the combination of education, hard work, and discipline. Education and degrees are not handed out or purchased; a person has to EARN them. This seems to be the only way out of poverty—sorry, there are no shortcuts.
    If we continue this trend of enabling, our entire state will be a welfare state.
